Sabertooth - Chapter 20
Chapter 20: Sabretooth (2)
As the 14th Militia Regiment of Brooklyn regrouped and broke through the defense line of the 33rd Regiment of the Southern Army again, the soldiers of the 1st Battalion of the ‘Louisiana Tigers’ rushed up from the south of the mountain, facing the Brooklyn Militia from the side A shot was launched.
Their precise and continuous shooting caused a lot of casualties to the Brooklyn Militia, and the soldiers of the Militia fell one by one.
Realizing that the situation was bad, Colonel Alfred immediately ordered the wounded soldiers to retreat, and he personally led the team to take off and cover.
Of course, it was Victor Creed, who was responsible for protecting his safety. At this time, the soldiers of the first battalion of the ‘Louisiana Tigers’ dropped their rifles and pulled out the waist. The war knife rushed over.
However, the Brooklyn 14th Militia was obviously not vegetarian. Under the leadership of Alfred and Victor, they launched a counterattack.
The fierce white-blade battle was launched between the two units, and the determination of the two sides to fight fearlessly made the battle extremely fierce.
Victor felt the pressure from elite soldiers for the first time. When he first played, Victor easily killed several soldiers from the first battalion of the ‘Louisiana Tiger’ by relying on his physical fitness.
Then he saw that a combat team was assigned to contain him. They surrounded him halfway and took turns attacking. As long as Victor attacked any one of them, the others immediately turned the knife towards his attack route.
Although it can still cause casualties to the opponent, it is no longer as efficient as before. He can only fly the opponent’s weapons and then look for flaws to kill the enemy.
Of course, if he is willing to reveal his identity as a mutant, he can still easily kill the opposite. He just had to rush through the knife with a knife, but obviously he couldn’t do it.
But what happened next changed his mind. Colonel Alfred was shot in the gun, and then two soldiers from the 1st Battalion of the ‘Louisiana Tigers’ caught him.
Seeing that the highest commander of his troops was about to become a captive, Victor no longer cared about the war knife cut by the enemy, he reached out and directly grabbed the hand of the soldier of the first battalion of the ‘Louisiana Tiger’, and then took him whole and make him a weapon.
The other soldiers responsible for besieging him were taken by surprise and were shot and flew. Then Victor rushed to Alfred with the Southern soldier. Subsequently, two southern soldiers, who wanted to capture Alfred also enjoyed the treatment of being shot down.
After hitting two Southern Army soldiers, Victor picked up Alfred and began to greet others to retreat. The Brooklyn 14th Militia Regiment did not beat others.
But even with the retreat, the Brooklyn 14th Militia Regiment did not turn around in a hurry like other federal troops and fled into the enemy’s target.
Instead, under the leadership of Victor, cross-screening was carried out, and the orderly withdrawal from the battlefield took place. As for the Tiger Battalion soldiers, who wanted to chase them down, after losing their soldiers in Victor’s hand, they also gave up to continue their pursuit.
Some of them were frightened: Victor frantically waved one of their allies as a weapon, then danced with a light hand, and found that there was only one arm remaining in his hand …
The scene once fell into a scene of blood and terror, just as Victor was about to capture the second tiger soldier as a weapon, the opposite side retreated from the heart.
At this time, Victor remembered that he was still carrying an injured commander, and quickly turned around to run.
Thankfully, Alfred was really lucky to be able to survive, but he passed out because of the pain, and did not know what he had experienced.
By the way, Victor also caught a colonel of the 33rd Regiment of the Southern Army on the way to retreat.
This old man was broken in the leg, and moaning on the ground. Because he wore a military uniform similar to the Northern Army, he was rescued by Victor, who was held under his armpit.
After the person was taken to the hospital and the rescue (amputation) was completed, Victor found that he is a colonel of the Southern Army, and then he became a prisoner…
Rescue (amputation) with him was also Colonel Alfred, who was carried back by Victor. After discharge, the respectable commander had to retire due to injury.
He was replaced by Lieutenant Colonel Edward Fowler, who was promoted to Colonel. He was originally the superior commander of the Brooklyn 14th Corps, so taking over the position of Colonel Alfred did not raise any objections.
The most gratifying thing is that the Brooklyn 14th Regiment has fought bravely on the front line and made outstanding contributions. After the troops withdrew to Washington, they became President Lincoln’s personal guard.
President Lincoln believes that they are well-trained and brave, and they are all neat and beautiful young people, so they specially appointed their personal guards as president during their stay in Washington. (It would be more perfect if these boys wore red clothes ________ President Lincoln thought)
The Brooklyn 14th Regiment, which was much loved by the President, was therefore dubbed ‘Lincoln’s pet’ and ‘Lincoln’s pet dog’ by allies.
Victor also fought several other fights with other friendly forces for this purpose. In the end, he didn’t use his any power except to spread his nickname ‘Sabertooth’ throughout Washington.
The reason for this is because of an interview with President Lincoln, he wants to meet the best guy in his favorite Brooklyn 14th Regiment’s people. Then Victor was selected.
Even Lincoln, who is known as the tallest president in history, pales in front of Victor’s tall stature, but the witty President Lincoln successfully recovered his height advantage with a high bowler hat.
“I thought you would like the nickname ‘Lincoln’s pet’, but I heard that you seem to be in conflict with other friendly forces for this?”
“We are honored to serve as your personal guard, Your Excellency the President, but they should not call us puppies. We are not soft pets. We are Sabretooths on the battlefield! The best volunteer army of the Federation.”
“Well, our Excellency Sabretooth, I heard that while you rescued Colonel Alfred, you also captured the senior commander of the enemy. Is this true?”
“Actually, I thought he was our ally, so I took him back, but now he has entered our prisoner of war camp.”
“Hahaha, your experience is really wonderful.”
In this way, after the interview, Victor’s Sabretooth nickname began to spread, and even once had the tendency to replace his real name.
In the end, what made his reputation spread throughout the North and South armies was an arrest operation: the arrest of the Southern Army spy Ross O’Neal Greenhow.
Yes, the famous Washington Communication Flower finally happened. President Lincoln immediately issued an arrest warrant. For security reasons, Victor, as a member of the President’s personal guard, went to the arrest also.
Then he thought that all the arrests would go smoothly without accident. But Ross O’Neal Greenhow is a mutant, who can hypnotize and control the thoughts of others through skin contact.
Very familiar ability, isn’t it? That’s right, this is the superpower of Wolverine’s first love interest Silver Fox, which also explains why no matter how old or young, so many high-ranking federal officials have fallen under the pomegranate skirt of Ross O’Neal Greenhow.
And this arrest operation, because it was a presidential secret order, Ross O’Neal Greenhow did not receive the information in advance, but when the agent knocked on the door, she was keenly aware that the situation was wrong.
She first hid her eight-year-old daughter, then opened the door calmly, and then controlled several agents, who wanted to arrest her through contact.
The controlled agent instantly became her accomplice. She pulled out her pistol and started shooting at other agents. The other agent, who was caught by surprise had to hide in the bunker and took out his pistol to start the counterattack.
Ross O’Neal Greenhow took this opportunity to escape through the window. Her plan was to first evacuate the arresters by herself, and then come back to pick up her daughter after getting rid of the arresters.
Her plan was almost successful. After solving the sudden ‘treason’ of the agent, the arrester only conducted a simple search of the room and was ready to pursue in the direction of Ross O’Neal Greenhow’s escape.
But Victor stopped them, he smelled of fear, and then he came to a study along the wall of the room.
All the bookcases in the room have been opened. Obviously the inside has been checked, but not completely, because he smelled the little girl.
As he shot suddenly, a bookcase collapsed, and behind the bookcase was a small ventilation duct, inside which was a little girl curled up: the eight-year-old daughter of Mrs. Greenhow.
“Look, what we found? Don’t be afraid, comev with me I will take you to your mother.”
“No! You guys! I won’t let you hurt my mother!”
Obviously, the eight-year-old girl was not Victor’s opponent at all. She was lifted out of the ventilation duct by Victor like a cat, threatening him with open teeth and claws.
“I’m optimistic about her, can I catch the cunning female fox, by this kitten.”
Although Victor has the ability to catch up, but there is clearly a better way now: why not do it. However, this woman’s ability is a bit troublesome.
In the end, Victor succeeded in persuading the secret service department through the mutation of the arrest, and set the trap with Mrs. Greenhow’s daughter, but everyone else ambushed in the distance, leaving him alone.
If Mrs. Greenhow controlled him, the others immediately shot and killed him and Mrs. Greenhow, as for Mrs. Greenhow’s daughter, try not to affect her …
Some people might say that Victor is hypocritical, but the truth is that he doesn’t worry about being controlled by Mrs. Greenhow’s superpowers at all, and he is also immune to telepathy. Perhaps Professor X can influence him, but if it is just Mrs. Greenhow, he will not be affected at all.
